Autumn Term 2020
The returning Nursery children have settled well after having a long time away from school. They have settled back into routines and have loved seeing old friends and playing together. We have welcomed lots of new children into Nursery and the transition so far has been very positive. Thank you families for your support as we get used to the new way of Nursery life during these strange times.
In the first few weeks of Nursery the children have shown us their fascination of dinosaurs by creating a large dinosaur in the painting area, dinosaur hunting and chasing outside, using the large small world dinosaurs in the indoor and outdoor areas and creating dinosaur footprints with stampers that we made from apple that had fallen from the trees in our garden.
Children in Need day
The Children enjoyed wearing Children in Need clothing to school and completing lots of fun activities, including dot to dots, colouring pages and practising their cutting skills by cutting circles to decorate Pudsey with. The children enjoyed watching the ‘Duck Races’ and cheered for our winners.
Egg-citing news! Our pet chickens arrived from the ‘Fresh Start for Hens’ charity this weekend.
They have been rescued as they are 18 months old and the farm that they were laying eggs for has finished with them…so we have given them a chance of a longer and happy life.
We will be taking it in turns in Nursery to care for the chickens: feeding them, changing their water and picking up their poo!
We have 7 chickens and are busy thinking of names for them all.
Learning to mix paint
Over the last few weeks the children have enjoyed exploring the paint area, learning how to mix paints to create different colours. They have followed the instructions well and used the tricky pumps to squirt out little amounts of different colours that they wish to mix.
After half term we began a new learning topic based on the story ‘Owl Babies’. The children have enjoyed listened to the story, learning facts about owls, talking about how Sarah, Percy and Bill feel, making owl masks and retelling the story in our role play area using the puppets and props. We are looking forward to real owls visiting us in school soon …
We follow the children’s interests in Nursery. This half-term we are really practising putting things away as soon as we have finished playing with them, looking after our classroom and making new friends. We have also been practising ‘Showing 5’ on the carpet during our Group Times.
We have just started our Phonics session and, as well as focusing on the important skills that Phase One of ‘Letters and Sounds’ equips us with (rhyming, alliteration, hearing different noises around us), we have also started to think about our ‘Sound of the Week’. We will be thinking about sounds in the following order: s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k…
Our interests so far…
